woodpilevespa

Restoration of a 1953, Vespa 125 VM1T. Found on first of december 2012. It has been buried in a woodpile since 1989.

It all started with a rumor about an buried old Vespa. The previous owner of the house, now deceased, told his trustee that he, after injuring his leg and afraid that someone would steal it, had hidden the Vespa in the woodpile. After a two hour long excavation, I finally managed to find it at the very bottom of the pile under a canvas.
